Another RoadSide Attraction / Bio

From Roanoke, VA, this husband and wife duo perform mostly original songs on a myriad of eclectic instruments: from the Mexican guitarron, to a variety of ukuleles, to the haunting musical saw, and a homemade recycled percussion setup. Lucy and Jordan have been playing since January 2010 in listening rooms and festivals, on sidewalks and libraries, classrooms and pool halls - over one hundred venues in ten states. As performers they are lively and engaging, definitely the kind of show you must see! The songs are distinctive, stories and tall tales, a glimpse into the dreams they dream; some of them are funny some are sad, but all are interesting in the different textures they evoke from their collection of strings and things. Fun for all ages and diverse crowds!

"They (Another RoadSide Attraction) have created a family and have built their lives around that which they love to do. When I go over to one of their houses they always seem to be practicing, writing, making costumes, gear, instruments or manufacturing their own merchandise. A lot of people talk about passion and devotion to craft, but I have never seen this level of commitment. This is a band of true believers. I have seen them at work. They know how to get things done and they know how to have fun doing it....You have to love their aesthetic. I like to call it Steinbeck/Through the Looking Glass. These guys don’t put on costumes to perform. They go to bed in them, they wake up in them, they go to Grandma’s house in their costumes."
